At the Meeting on February 4 Plans
Will Be Completed for Work
of Club During Year.
Another meeting of the Princeton
Commercial club will be held at the
Armory on Friday evening, February
4, at 8 p. m., for the purpose of com
pleting definite arrangements for car
rying on the club work for the ensuing
The board of directors has made a
personal canvass of the village and
now has about 100 signers of the peti
tions for membership, which, together
with the old, will give the club a
membership close to 150. Wfth this
number of active members there is no
question but what the club work for
the ensuing year will be a success.
The matter of initiation fees and
annual dues will also be taken up at
this meeting and be definitely de
termined. The board of directors has
made up a schedule of fees and dues
which to them seems just and equita
ble to all concerned. They have, how
ever, decided to submit this important
question to the whole club for final de
termination, so that no member can
say afterwards that he did not have
a voice in the fixing of the schedule.
There has also been some little criti
cism as to the manner in which the
board of directors was selected at the
meeting of January 19. This matter
has been thoroughly investigated by
the board, and every member of the
board has expressed his willingness to
resign and make room for any new
director that the club sees fit to elect
in his place. This broad policy has
been adopted by the board because it
realizes that in order to be a success
and do good work the club must have
the unanimous backing of the whole
village and community. In other
words, if there has been the slightest
slip made in getting a good start for
the club the board is of the unanimous
opinion that we should back up and
start over again, if necessary, in order
to smooth out any present difficulties
or misunderstandings.
The secretary has been instructed to
send out to all signers of the petitions
for membership notice of this meeting.
If anyone has been overlooked by the
board in its personal canvass, and this
could easily happen because frequent
ly a prospective member might have
stepped out of his store or office or
have been out of town when the com
mittee called on him, we want him to
come to this meeting just the same
and this is his official invitation to
do so.
The commercial club is supposed to
represent the business houses and th
professional men in town. Some busi
ness establishments in town are owned
and conducted by women. It is entirely
fitting and pronar that there business
houses should be represented in the
commercial club, and we hope the
women will feel no hesitancy in avail
ing themselves of the invitation to be
come members of the association.

Potato Market Goes to Pieces.
Weaker and weaker grows the pota
to market, and if the decline continues
much longer the tubers will scarcely
pay for the cost of hauling to the
warehouses. Even Triumphs, which
are shipped to the southern states for
seed purposes and usually command
big prices at this season of the year,
are bringing only $1.50 to $1.60 per
cwt in consequence of the very light
demand. The lowest price is being
paid for Ohios today30 to 40 cents
per cwtwhile quotations for white
stock are but 10 cents higher and
Kings range from 40 to 50 cents. The
decline has been general for all va
rieties10 cents per cwt below last

no prospect at this time, say buyers,

Home Quint Becomes Completely Dis

Sixteen to Seven Game.

last three minutes of play, the fast

local high school quint by the mislead
ing score of 16 to 7.

last few minutes w.\s far below par.
The Princetcn defense was strong but
their offensive playing was noticeable
because of its absence. The Mom bas
keteers played a strong game but
seemed unable to connect with the
basket in the few long shoes they were
allowed to attempt. The half ended
with tlie score 5 to 4, with Princeton
leadinga scon that indicated the
closeness of the gfme.
1A the second half the locals came
back with what gave promise of being
a real show of offensive playing, and
although they were far from the form
which they displayed in the Milaca
game, they were able to lead the visi
tors throughout most of the entire
period. A long shot by Day, the
clever Mora forward, started his te^m
on a scoring orgio which ended only
when the whistle blew, leoving Mora
on the big end of a 16 to 7 score. The

Mora forwards seemed unable to miss
the ring and the local defense became
so completely disorganized that the
casual observer might have mistaken
the Princeton players for spectators.
The work of Captain McClelland, the
big Mora guard, and the floor work of
Nygren, the local forward, were the
two bright spots in th-j game.
The audience could scarcely under
stand the great reversal in form
which has overcome the Princeton
players, but the local fans are expect
ing a display of the old snap and drive
in the Cambridge fray next Friday
evening at the high school gym. The
tboys themselves guarantee a real bat

Mora Quint Defeated.
The legionaires defeated the Mora
basketball team last night in the fast
est game played on the armory floor
this year. The locals started scoring
from the start, when Kaliher caged a
long field goal and followed with a
free throw, making the score 3 to 0.
However at this stage McGilvie, Mora
guard, started going and the visitors
caged two field baskets. The basket
shooting of Milbrath, however, evened
matters up and the first half ended in
a*tie17 to 17.
When the whistle blew for the sec
ond half it was seen that Mora had
made a few changes in their team and
were, without doubt, out to make the
game safe at the start, while the locals
started with the same men. From the
first tip off it was seen that the locals
were going to have things their own
way in this half. They scored 12
points before the Mora bunch could
get a point. At this point the locals
let up and simply held their lead. The
game finished 35 to 26.
The playing of McGilvie for the
Mora team was of a sensational order
at times, but his guard soon got on

Legislators and Political Parties.
In amending the primary law the
present absurd condition of electing
members of the legislature without
party designation should be correct
ed. Minnesota is the only state in the
union where legislative members are
elected as individuals and not as party
representatives. The deal to elect
legislative members without party
designation was put over in 1913 by
the liquor interests, who having found
they could not commit a political par
ty to their program, figured they could
line up individuals. So they were
able to get the law changed. How
ever, the change has helped neither
legislation, efficiency or economy. It
has, however, disrupted organization
and wiped out responsib'lity. In or
der to accomplish things in a progres
sive w?y in our strtc our campaigns
must be conducted with the idea of
carrying out certain prepared and
thought-out programs. To do this con
sistently requires co-operative effort
between the governor and the legis
lature. To elect the governor as a
party man and the legislature as in
dividuals disrupts this necessary and
proper organization and tends to de
feat the co-operation which must exist
if programs are to be put through
promptly and efficiently. By all
means elect the members of the leg
islature as we do our governor. Tie
the two branches of our government
up to the same pledges and then we
can make better progress.Long
